Surfers should see good-sized waves on both south and north shores today.

The National Weather Service issued a high surf advisory for south shores through Saturday evening because of  a rising south swell. Wave heights should reach 8 feet by this evening and peak Saturday.

The swell is from a storm near New Zealand last week.

Surf on the north shore is expected to decline from 4- to 8-foot heights this morning. A storm near the Aleutians generated the surf which peaked Thursday. 

West shores are seeing some wrap around surf from both swells. Waves are forecast to be 3- to 6-feet.

East shore surf, driven by light tradewinds, is predicted to be 1- to 3-feet today.

Forecasters warn that the high surf could produce dangerous rip currents.
